Title: A Royal Christmas Wedding (book 4)
Author: Rachel Hauck
Published: October 18, 2016
It’s been five years since Avery Truitt and Prince Colin of Brighton Kingdom fell in love. But he broke her heart with no explanation.
Fast forward to present day, and Colin is Brighton’s most eligible bachelor now that cousin Stephen has married. When Avery’s father dies of a heart attack, she puts her life on hold and returns home to St. Simons Island, Georgia, to help Mama with the family restaurant. But Mama misses Avery’s sister Susanna, who lives four thousand miles away in Brighton Kingdom—and is expecting her first child. So Mama insists she and Avery spend the Christmas season in Brighton.
Colin and Avery are going to see each other a lot while she’s visiting. But she can’t forget the way he hurt her, and he didn’t expect his feelings to still be so strong.
Avery is torn between considering a future in Brighton and taking a coaching job in Georgia, and Colin is finally pushed to pursue what he really wants. Is it too late to convince Avery that she is his true love? And even if he does, will she make it to the chapel on Christmas Day to give him her heart?
Another great love story by Rachel Hauck!
I am so happy that Rachel decided to write the Colin and Avery story. They had a brief romance in a previous book and I hoped they would get their happily ever after.
I love the centuries-old Brighton tradition of the bell being rung and of the man declaring his love for his special woman. I also like how Rachel turned this tradition into a spiritual event. (really cool)
I picture Brighton as a quaint old town, maybe Swiss or Bevarian in style. (These are just my mind pictures, may not be anything like what the author was picturing as she wrote it) I see flower boxes in the windows of all the little shops in town. Of course all of the in habitants of the town are super friendly. It is the perfect backdrop for Avery and Colin’s romance to unfurl.
It wouldn’t be a Rachel Hauck novel if everything was smooth sailing for the two love birds. The difficulties Colin and Avery face are some of the same things we all face. Are we going to listen to the Holy Spirit and follow the Lord’s plan for our lives or are we going to be headstrong and do what we want to do?
This is a wonderful story. I’m sure you will enjoy reading it as much as I did.
If you like a good clean love story, this is the book for you.
